At the Toyota Palo Alto blog, we will explore the fuel economy ratings for the 2021 Toyota Highlander Hybrid to help you see just how efficient this family-friendly vehicle is.
How Far Can the 2021 Toyota Highlander Hybrid Go on One Tank of Gas?
The 2021 Toyota Highlander Hybrid offers impressive performance and efficiency specifications. This SUV comes with a hybrid powertrain consisting of a 2.5L Atkinson Cycle engine and two electric motors. While the engine alone offers 186 horsepower and 175 lb-ft of torque, its strength boosts to 243 combined horsepower when functioning alongside the two electric motors.
Wondering where each of the motors are located? That answer will depend on your drivetrain selection. Front-wheel drive (FWD) is standard and will place both motors at the front of the vehicle. With available all-wheel drive (AWD), the Highlander Hybrid will have one motor up front with the other by the rear wheels. With FWD, the 2021 Toyota Highlander Hybrid offers up to 36 city MPG, 35 highway MPG, and 36 combined MPG. With AWD, the Highlander Hybrid will offer up to 35 MPG for city, highway, and combined driving.
So, based on these ratings, how far can the 2021 Toyota Highlander Hybrid go on one tank of gas? Assuming that you select a Highlander Hybrid with the maximum 36 city MPG, 35 highway MPG, and 36 combined MPG ratings, you can travel for up to 615.6 miles thanks to its 17.1-gallon fuel tank. Of course, this also assumes that you are driving from full all the way to completely empty with city or combined driving. If you are traveling only on the highway, you can expect to drive up to 598.5 miles before running out of gas. Of course, to avoid getting stranded, it’s highly recommended to fill up before you reach these limits.
